Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a private golf lesson with PGA professional instructor Chuck Mayhew (a $75 value). This Groupon can be redeemed at the Westerville Golf Center in Westerville or the Four Seasons Golf Center in Columbus.
A PGA member since 1986, Chuck Mayhew is an experienced golf instructor who believes in putting the basics to work for his students. In a 45-minute lesson, he'll study your swing and offer pointers for improving your birdie hunting. Chuck’s teaching approach centers on the game’s fundamentals, which are typically difficult to grasp thanks to their slick coating of bacon grease and olive oil. Two instructional venues, one of which has an indoor facility, help prevent par-seekers from toting their drivers and mulligans long distances or losing golf balls among clusters of golf-ball-sized hail.
Chuck Mayhew, PGA member for more than 30 years, teaches the basics of golf swing mechanics before moving on to more complicated tweaks to his students' swings. Though certain golf tenets are universal, Chuck knows that any single teaching method won't work for every player, which is why he tailors his approach to fit each individual student. Private lessons begin with an assessment of each player's current ball positioning, alignment, and swing posture—key components that must be corrected before beginning any backswing. Once students have an understanding of these fundamentals, Chuck teaches how they relate to one another, helping students improve their golf game by making these basic elements work for them.
